    Question oil filter question

    my local dealer only has an oil filter for the 98 mille. Is it the same as one for an 03 rsvr?
    I imagine it would be but I want to make sure
    cheers peeps.

    i seem to remember being told by a dealer that at some point they changed the filter to a larger one, can't remember who told me or what year it affected. worth investigating.

    Dealers do fit the newer, longer filter at service times along with the new filter cover.

    Do you have it serviced at an Aprilia dealer?

    All bikes should have the larger capacity filter and filter cover fitted as service time. Apparently there were a few cases of engine failures due to poor lubrication and they have fitted them as a precaution. I can dig out the part numbers for you from my last invoice if you want?

    Shouldn't make any difference what year but yours is the same year as mine anyway....

    IF you would find that part number that would be great...

    another question now, what grade oil?

    I was going to go for fully sinthetic 10w 40 but i've just noticed my haynes manual suggests 15w50

    Semi synth is generally the way to go but some do run fully synth at the risk of clutch slip
